Neil@...
 

Looking for information on Rabbi R. David HESCHEL (originally FLAMM),
lived in Lvov and left in 1939 for the USA and arrived in Philadelphia
in 1940 where he took up a pulpit. He had left his wife and other
daughters behind in Lvov who perished before he could get them out of
Europe.

Wilkowrosky, Russia #general

I have a copy of a passenger manifest >from Hamburg to New York.
The manifest date is June 27, 1900. I believe my uncle was on this ship,
and as far as I know he and his family were >from Vilkomir, Russia.
On the manifest, the place of origin by his name is Wilkowrosky, Russia.
Would that be the same as Vilkomir?

Isaac KOLLER & STRAUS, SCHNELLER, HECKSCHER from New York City #general

Julian H. Preisler
 

Dear List Members:

Hoping that someone may recognize the name Isaac KOLLER and wife Wilhelmina
(Minna) MOSER >from New York City.

Isaac was >from Teplitz, North Bohemia in the Czech Republic and came to
the US in the 1850's. He died in 1889 and is buried at Mount Nebo Cemetery
in Queens, NY.

Wife was >from Lichtenstadt (Hroznetin) near Karlovy Vary (Karlsbad) in the
Czech Republic.

All of my KOLLER ancestors were >from Teplitz and I'm hoping to connect
this Isaac.

Isaac had children:

#1 Charles B. married to Sevilla FEIGEL in 1890. Charles died in 1919,
Sevilla died in 1914 or 1915 and both are buried at Mount Nebo, though his
family did live for a time in Philadelphia where Sevilla was from;

#2 Louis B. married Amelia HECKSCHER in 1884. Louis died in 1926 buried
at Mount Nebo. He and Amelia had a daughter Rachel(1884) and son Ira/Isaac
(1892). Rachel married Milton STRAUS in 1905;

#3 William died in 1919 buried Mount Nebo. Wife Nora and one son Richard.
Richard married Margaret or Dorothy and had Edna & Raymond. Richard &
family lived in California;

#4 Samuel nothing is known about him;

#5 Rachel born in NYC died in 1935 buried at Mount Nebo, married Sigmond
SCHNELLER in 1885. Two daughters Juliette and Hortense who died after
1940 and never married;

#6 Joseph B. born in NYC died in 1945, never married;

#7 Emily B. born in NYC 1866 or 1867 died in 1899 and buried at Mount
Nebo.

I have searched every available database for the family including
Jewish records >from Teplitz, but cannot make a definite connection. I
have some of the grave photos and while they are quite elaborate
they include little or no Hebrew so at this point I do not know the
name of Isaac's father which would be quite helpful. Per Isaac's and
Minna's death years, there is no record listed in the NYC databases.

All of the Kollers >from Teplitz are connected somehow and I hope to
include this mystery one in my family tree. Not many of the family at
all left Europe for the USA.

Thanks to everyone for reading this rather long description.

Re: Researching RHOADES family from Fleming, New York, USA #germany

Barbara:

Ancestry.com has databases for the following on their website:

Berlin Germany, Births, 1874 - 1899 (in German)
Berlin, Germany, Selected Marriages, 1874 - 1920 (in German)
Berlin, Germany, Selected Deaths, 1874 - 1920 (in German)

If you could find a document for your grandparents in one of these
databases, most probably it would include the religion of the individuals.
Most of them did.

You should also check out the Kehila Links page for Berlin at:
http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/berlin/Home.html
It was beautifully created by Eli Rabinowitz

You also wrote that you are searching for information for your father >from
1888 when he was born. But you did not write *where* he was born. It is
difficult to locate documents if you do not know where to look.

I hope this is helpful.

I have written an article about three Saras in the same family. It is in

It happened sometimes, especially in the period that you are writing about.
In daily life, the girls would listen to different names.
I myself have two Alexanders in the same family.

Preserving the Jewish Cemetery in Bialystok #poland

Mark Halpern
 

For many years. the head of the Jewish Community in Bialystok, Lucy
Lisowska, has worked with volunteers and student groups to clean up and
restore the one remaining Jewish Cemetery in Bialystok that has standing
Matzevot.

This Cemetery was established in the early 1890s and had its last burial
in the 1960s. The Cemetery has some 30,000-40,000 Jews >from Bialystok
and nearby smaller town Jews buried there. Today, above ground, the
cemetery has about 3,000 Matzevot in various states of disarray.

Last year a couple >from the US were traveling in the Bialystok area when
one of these volunteer efforts to restore the Cemetery was active. The
husband is a contractor with over 30 years of experience as a stone
mason and operating equipment needed for a major restoration project.
He and three other highly trained workers are ready and willing to
volunteer a week of their time this summer with the objective to uncover
and reinstall 500 tombstones and to apply special adhesive to put broken
stones back together.

Re: Looking for Relatives #latinamerica

Ann Rabinowitz
 

When looking for relatives in Latin America, the first place to try is the familysearch.org site. If you plug in your relatives' name and country, up they will pop. Lots of Kampels and Mutzmachers.

Remember, in this particular case, to put either the City or Country and limit it to the exact spelling.

Aires. She asked me for information about a death and burial in
Breslau in 1926. I have sent her 3 messages in response, but they are
"bouncing back" to me. For some reason, the address she used to send
her note to me is not accepting my replies.

If anyone knows Liliana LOEWENSTEIN or has a way to contact her,
please ask her to write to me again -- or ask whether she is having
problems with her e-mail service.
